The Stars selected four more forwards in rounds 2-7:
Round 2, 38th Overall: Alex Chiasson
-There was no doubt in Chiasson’s mind that he was going to Dallas. They were basically the only team he talked to. It’s good to know that they got a guy they really wanted. Keep in mind, that he’s conveniently a right wing.
Round 3, 69th Overall: Reilly Smith
-Once again, the Stars chose a right wing. He’s speedy and Canadian. That’s all I know.
Round 4: none
-This was part of the Brad Richards deal last year.
Round 5, 129th Overall: Tomas Vincour
-He’s yet another natural right wing, but people question his consistency and “soft-ness.”
Round 6, 159th Overall: Curtis McKenzie
-They switched it up a little and got a left wing. He’s got a good attitude to make up for his scoring ability.
Round 7: none
-This was traded to San Jose for their sixth round pick next year.
A lot of these players look like they were chosen for having good attitudes and a lot of heart. I really like the sound of that. 🙂
